96

99
Barack‘s mother was very important to him, but he spent a great deal of his life living in a different place. So, as all kids do, you always have a fantasy of what perfection would be.

122
If we win, a lot of guys are going to be noticed. That’s my main focus is winning at the end of the day. If guys get recognized, they get recognized. It’s obviously a great deal individually, but I’m trying to win.
123
I don’t know if 1300 players could really participate in the selection of a commissioner, and I’ve never given it a great deal of thought. I think it’s a logical point they could make, but it’s only an academic one.

125
It hurt me a great deal. It put a lot of pressure on me because I was at a young age and the writers around here and throughout the league starting comparing me to Cobb. It put a lot of pressure on me.

People in the U.S. pay a great deal of money to support their judiciary, and they have an actual right to see how it functions.

When I first became captain of the Indian cricket team in 2000, many well-wishers and journalist friends gifted me the classic Mike Brearley book, ‘The Art of Captaincy.’ I mean no disrespect to the book or Mr, Brearley, who I admire a great deal, but books or team meetings don’t make you good captains.

139

Ernest Borgnine
141
Yes, I would say I had quite a rough time from 1992 to 1996. After the highs of the Eighties, work became slow from around 1987 to around 1997. I was running a small recording studio in Shepherd‘s Bush but wasn’t making a great deal from it.
142

Antonia Fraser
151

157
It is often said there is a great deal of talent in the Conservative Parliamentary Party. This is true, but too many of the brightest and best remain on the backbenches.
158

164
In France, I guess there’s something like a tyranny in mentalities – we accept success badly, beauty, money. People are certainly envious, and this creates negative energy. This is annoying. I suffered a great deal at one time. I had to fight harder than others. Add to that my marriage to Polanski.
165
President Ford used humor a great deal.
166
Maybe directors who are more interested in realism and naturalism come from cities, where they see things on their doorstep every day.

167
I’ve worked with some very good directors and some very bad ones. I learned a great deal from both. From the bad, untalented people, you learn what not to do. And when you work with very highly talented people, you want to emulate them.

Some people write heavily, some write lightly. I prefer the light approach because I believe there is a great deal of false reverence about. There is too much solemnity and intensity in dealing with sacred matters; too much speaking in holy tones.
173
Although it may be true that the notion of teaching virtues such as honesty or integrity arouses little controversy, it is also true that vague consensus on the goodness of these virtues conceals a great deal of actual disagreement over their definitions.
174
I wrote a great deal about the Civil Rights Movement when I was writing for ‘The Nation’ in the ’60s, and also for Esquire magazine. Reading the biography of Coffin, it just reminded me that in those days, when you saw the term ‘Christian,’ it usually meant people for civil rights and for justice.
Dan Wakefield
175
Prose on certain occasions can bear a great deal of poetry; on the other hand, poetry sinks and swoons under a moderate weight of prose.
176
Canada needs to be flood-proofed, and somebody has to pay for it. Yes, there are other threats, too – fire, hail, wind, snow load, permafrost loss and shoreline erosion will all cost a great deal of money to remediate – but flooding is the big, urgent one.
177
There’s still a great deal of bias about homosexuality.
178
Perhaps I will stay in Chicago and operate on human beings instead of on dogs. From a business standpoint, it would be excellent. But, as I hate medical practice, I would like better to make little money in doing scientific work than a great deal in doing surgical operations.
Alexis Carrel
179
My generation feels it has been lied to a great deal.
180
There is a great deal of unmapped country within us which would have to be taken into account in an explanation of our gusts and storms.
181
The Sino-Indian War in 1962 has fundamentally shaped and distorted Indian attitudes towards China. It also obscured a great deal of what has happened in China since 1962.
182
In our world, in which religious images are losing their meaning, in which our customs are getting more and more secular, we are losing our sense of the eternal. I think it’s a loss that has done a great deal of damage to modern art. Painting is a return to origins.
Antoni Tapies
183
The mind that has not been developed or trained is very scattered. That’s the normal state of affairs, but it leaves us out of touch with a great deal in life, including our bodies.
184
You have to study a great deal to know a little.
185
I had no idea about running a hotel, but as an investment, as a property in real estate, it was very interesting because we got a great deal. Talking to my mom, I said, ‘Listen, we’re going to buy this, but I need somebody to run it.’ So I asked my mom, ‘Are you willing to do it?’
186
Something that’s seldom appreciated about me is that I am in sympathy with a great deal of what Marx wrote, except that I’m on the side of the bourgeoisie.
187
TV and film taught me to think cinematically. Teaching others to edit, for example, provides a great deal of insight into the millions of ways in which given elements can be put together to tell a story.
Alan Bradley
188
Sometimes, we need an obstacle to challenge us and push us further than we would if things were always status quo. I’d say one example is the market crashing. It’s like, just when we started to get into a rhythm, everything changed! But, it taught us a great deal about how we do business and how we can improve.
189
The nice thing about the Bible is it doesn’t give you too many facts. Two an a half lines and it tells you the whole story and that leaves you a great deal of freedom to elaborate on how it might have happened.
190
If you re-read your work, you can find on re-reading a great deal of repetition can be avoided by re-reading and editing.
191
I think a great deal of my son, I love my son. The things I do are unthinkable. I do them because he even though he can’t see the pain on my side, I still give and give for what? So he can have a better future.
192
People might not think that, but the Republicans have all of the cards. And this is the time to get rid of Obamacare. This is the time to make the great deal.
Donald Trump
193
I take a great deal of value in things that are done by hand or executed by hand.
194
I have a great deal of respect and affinity for Tammy Duckworth; she’s a seatmate of mine. She’s got heart, soul; she’s a war hero.
195
When I was teaching in the 1960s in Boston, there was a great deal of hope in the air. Martin Luther King Jr. was alive, Malcolm X was alive; great, great leaders were emerging from the southern freedom movement.
196
Ric Flair is a wonderful person, and he was such a great in-ring performer. He had a great deal to do with the direction of the business. There are great characters that have come into this business, but Flair can’t be duplicated.
197
We necessarily operate in an environment in which there’s a great deal of uncertainty. In such an environment, it makes sense to use a risk-management approach to identify and avoid the big mistakes. That’s one reason I favor a cautious approach.
198
Twitter, Facebook, and other social media outlets have a great deal of information about all of us – and the government wants to be able to see it.
199
There’s a final exam in venture every four to six years. The scary thing is you need to get an ‘A’ in every discipline. You need to be on generational planning, need to be on great deal flow, need be on great outcomes, you need to be on great company building.
David Sze
200
Home purchases that are very highly leveraged or unaffordable subject the borrower and lender to a great deal of risk. Moreover, even in a strong economy, unforeseen life events and risks in local real estate markets make highly leveraged borrowers vulnerable.
201
A great deal of creativity is about pattern recognition, and what you need to discern patterns is tons of data. Your mind collects that data by taking note of random details and anomalies easily seen every day: quirks and changes that, eventually, add up to insights.
202
I’ll never understand how destroying families through deportation benefits our society. How we treat the undocumented says a great deal about us as a people and whether or not we’ll continue to fulfill the fundamental American promise of equality and opportunity for all.
203
Architecture remains a passion and a subject I’m very interested in. I learned a great deal from studying it and working in it.
204
When we get to wishing a great deal for ourselves, whatever we get soon turns into mere limitation and exclusion.
205
I think it is fair to say that it is under a great deal of stress, and if I am asking for significant changes, it is because the world is going through significant changes.
206
As a kid, I didn’t read a great deal of fiction, and I’ve forgotten most of what I did read.
207
I don’t have a great deal of stress job-wise in my life, and that feels good.
208
As we get older… I don’t know a single person who has devoted their life to musical theatre who hasn’t had a couple of misses as well as a bunch of hits. The misses, we learn a great deal from them.
Maury Yeston
209
I have a lot of blurring between fiction and non-fiction in so many of my works. For example, my first novel, ‘When Nietzsche Wept,’ has a great deal of non-fiction in it. I didn’t create many characters at all. Almost all of them are historical characters that actually existed.
210
Back when we were first making records, you didn’t just make the music, you put a great deal of energy into the way it looked, and every word that was written on the whole thing.
211
I do think that it’s extremely important with this character show her assuming power with a great deal of grace, and find out how to do things she won’t like – the things she’s called upon to do.
Mary McDonnell
212
Well, because I have twin seven-year-old boys, I enjoy the gift giving stuff a great deal. We do both Hanukkah and Christmas, so it is a costly, though extremely pleasing proposition.
Fred Melamed
213
You can get an interview with anyone overseas on the basis of being part of ‘Newsweek.’ It still has a great deal of impact.
214
I have a great deal of respect for other clubs and admire the good football they play, but ultimately, Real Madrid are Real Madrid.
215
Every ceremony or rite has a value if it is performed without alteration. A ceremony is a book in which a great deal is written. Anyone who understands can read it. One rite often contains more than a hundred books.
George Gurdjieff
216
I look at my voice and my abilities as a gift. I don’t feel that I can even take any credit for it, but it’s such a huge presence in my life. It is my life. It’s my identity, it’s everything. And it’s given me a great deal of joy and a sense of purpose – I can’t imagine my life without it.
217
There is no question I owe Mia a great deal for adopting me. For that gesture, I still love her.
Soon-Yi Previn
218
When an author creates a town in her novels, she spends a great deal of time visualizing the streets and buildings, landmarks and topography. And while the town becomes real in her imagination, it’s rare for an author to see the place she’s created actually spring to life.
Lori Wilde
219
If I remember back to when I wasn’t open about my sexuality, I spent a great deal of time worried about it.
220
I don’t know who can constantly afford to go and see things. A play, which has five people in it and one set and it cost you 60 quid? And you’re in a theatre that really hasn’t had a great deal of money spent on it in the last 50 or 60 years? It’s kind of weird.
221
I may have been lucky with some sort of intuition, but I believe in training a great deal.
David Selby
222
I make fun wherever I go… If I go to a restaurant by myself, rest assured, people will be talking about it. I always have a great deal of fun being with people. It’s part of the journey.
223
If the past cannot teach the present and the father cannot teach the son, then history need not have bothered to go on, and the world has wasted a great deal of time.
Russell Hoban
224
For many athletes, an injury can mean the end of a relationship with a sponsor. XYIENCE stood behind me in my time of victory and they continued to do so when I became injured. This means a great deal to me.
225
Because I’ve spent most of my life with such a beautiful, talented, challenging female, I feel I’ve gained – and am still gaining – a great deal of knowledge about the feminine mystique and about personal relationships – knowledge which is so important to a writer.
226
Gradually it occurred to me that we spend a great deal of life asleep and that dreams are little narratives, little stories. I thought, ‘Who’s choreographing this stuff?’
227
I not only urge you to vote that ticket yourself, but I beg that you will persuade others to do so. Personal effort can accomplish a great deal, and I beg that you will use your personal influence with your friends to get them to go with you to save the boys.
Thomas Jordan Jarvis
228
November is Native American Heritage month, and a good time to honor the legacy of our ancestors, but every day we should stop to think about our country’s beginning and that the United States would not exist if not for a great deal of sacrifice, blood, and tears by Indian Tribes across the country.
229
I find a great deal of comfort and care in my faith and prayer. I’d sooner do without air than prayer.
230
I want to break into the acting industry. It’s something I have a great deal of respect for; it’s a passion of mine. It’s so amazing, the differences between acting and being an athlete, but the one commonality is they both evoke emotion in the viewer. And those emotions are real. So I think that’s pretty cool.
231
I love Damien Hirst. I respect his work a great deal, and I am happy that the polka dots I started using have become a symbol of love and peace around the world with everybody joining hands to use them in this way.
232
The push to defund public schools and reroute taxpayer money to charters and private institutions is actually a very clever strategy by the Right Wing, which has always had a great deal of disdain for a system that forces them to pay taxes toward some other kid’s non-religious, science-based education.
233
Writing requires a great deal of skill, just like painting does. People don’t want to learn those skills.
John Milius
234
I want young girls that I mentor and young girls all around the world who want to be a model to be able to see that there’s a great deal of sacrifice.
235
I had friends but I was spending a great deal of my time alone and for me that was vital because there’s an awful lot you learn about yourself when you’re alone.
236
My dad, who is a heart surgeon, works with many adult patients who did not take good care of their bodies in their formative years. He is able to teach them how to break old eating and exercise habits and reshape their bodies, but not without a great deal of resistance.
Daphne Oz
237
Liberality consists less in giving a great deal than in gifts well-timed.
238
There’s a great deal of echoing going on in ‘Old School.’ Mr. Piven, who played the upstart outsider in the 1994 campus comedy ‘PCU,’ has crossed over into playing the stiff martinet.
239
Ernest Hemingway did a great deal toward making the writer an acceptable public figure; obviously, he was no sissy.
240
A film is a great deal about what you see, and the silhouette of a character tells you a lot. I’d love to go into film costume.
241
I take a great deal of pride in pitching deep into ballgames.
242
In the early days of aviation, there was a great deal of experimentation and a high death rate.
243
There’s an intelligence that goes with being a good cop. Intuitiveness – they have to be actors; they have to have deductive reasoning, knowledge about a great deal of subjects.
244
I think the first album cover was considered most provocative. I think that contributed a great deal.
Julie London
245
Where words are restrained, the eyes often talk a great deal.
246
My idea of good company is the company of clever, well-informed people who have a great deal of conversation; that is what I call good company.
247
There is a great deal of concern in the Chinese military that Taiwan‘s reunification with China is drifting further and further away.
248
A great deal of talent is lost to the world for want of a little courage. Every day sends to their graves obscure men whose timidity prevented them from making a first effort.
249
I never know how to give advice to a writer because there’s so much you could say, and it’s hard to translate your own experience. But of course, I always try. The main thing that I usually end up saying is to read a lot. To read a great deal and to learn from that.
250
I need to have a great deal of control and the ability to share my control with my collaborators and grant them the freedom and the quality of work I think these people deserve. If I don’t have those elements, I walk away.
251
People may have their opinions about Senator Helms, but he was highly effective and he took care of his constituency. I learned all those lessons from him, and I bring a great deal to the table because of that.
David Rouzer
252
Gentlemen have talked a great deal of patriotism. A venerable word, when duly practiced.
253
I learned a great deal doing Brooklyn Bridge. I was able to take a giant step into the terrible reality that was then. We saw the cattle cars that took folks away. Just knowing it was real, it would be impossible not to feel.
Marion Ross
254
A soulmate is someone who you could spend a great deal of time with just sitting on a sofa and feel happy. You don’t need fanfare. You don’t need to go out to expensive restaurants.
255
I have a great deal of respect for any women that will enter the world of little boys of sports.
256
A great deal of WWE Superstars, like Dolph Ziggler, Bray Wyatt, Baron Corbin, Sheamus, Braun Strowman, The Miz, etc., came from WWE’s developmental system, and I’ve had the privilege of working with them over the years.
257
A great deal has been accomplished by the team, and I do think it important that it goes on and it is allowed to reach its full conclusion. In fact, I really believe it ought to be better resourced and totally focused on WMD; that that is important to do it.
258
At Princeton I gained a great deal of pleasure from success in my classes. knowing that I could accomplish those things, and I realized that my success was directly proportionate to the work I put in.
259
A police force, wherever they are, is made up of amazing people, and I respect them a great deal.
Nancy McKeon
260
The Obama administration has vastly expanded the use of armed drones and concentrated a great deal of diplomatic effort on building and maintaining alliances that share information about terrorists, provide access to get near them, and then strike against them.
261
I’ve read everything printed in English that Freud has written. It helped me a great deal.
262
Most people are fed up to the back teeth with the never-ending wrangle over Brexit. All they want is for a competent government to get on with it and deliver a great deal for everyone in the U.K.
263
A great deal of my comedy comes from the trials and tribulations of growing up a big kid in the Boston area.
264
I care a great deal about humanity! I care. I really care.
265
Ethical and questions of philosophy interest me a great deal.
Robert Sheckley
266
A great deal of stupidity has chipped away at the massive advantages of Western civilization, which could terminally decline if it remains on the current path. But these problems can be solved – and swiftly – if the right leaders emerge.
267
I have always had a great deal of respect and admiration for Eleanor Roosevelt. She was a true humanitarian and champion of Women’s Rights and Civil Rights.
268
I find that I take a great deal of pleasure knowing I get up people’s noses to some degree.
John Connolly
269
There is a great deal of reward when you do good work and people see how successful that work is and the happiness it brings to them.
270
Winter lingered so long in the lap of Spring that it occasioned a great deal of talk.
271
Christmas means a great deal to me. I was reared in a family that celebrated Christmas to some extent, but I married into a family that celebrated Christmas in a big way. And my wife always made a big thing of Christmas for the children. We have five children, and we had a terrific time at Christmas.
272
In my professional work with the Agency, by the late ’70s, I had come to question the value of a great deal of what we were doing, in terms of the intelligence agency‘s impact on American policy.
273
Designers want their clothes and their shows to be absolutely perfect, exactly as they imagined, and there is a great deal of work that goes into doing that. Some collections can tell a whole story, from the first look to the last. The way the colors and the clothes transition is very interesting.
274
The explosion in the number of available personal services says a great deal about changing ideas of what we can reasonably expect from whom.
275
Not a great deal is known about the factors in childhood that doubtless underlie a person’s choice of career – I’m talking now about a career to which one is passionately committed, in contradistinction to a career chosen merely as a means of earning a living.
Nathaniel Branden
276
My early life has given me a great deal to draw on, certainly – but would I have swapped a happy childhood for the writing? Yes.
Bruce Robinson
277
I think that what’s been holding composers back a great deal is that they feel they must have a new style every year. This, in my case, would be hopeless. In fact, it is said that I have no style at all, but that doesn’t matter. I just go on doing, as they say, my thing. I believe this takes a certain courage.
Samuel Barber
278
I spent a great deal of my life being ignored. I was always very happy that way.
Saul Leiter
279
There’s no question that any of us who are doing an honest job in government could do a lot better in private industry. During the years I was practicing law as an individual, my salary was a great deal more than it is now.
Bill Scott
280
Life has a great deal up its sleeve.
281
A great deal of my mail comes from fans of the ‘Oz’ picture – fans of all ages. The scholarly, the curious, the disbelievers write and ask how? why? when? what for? did you fly? melt? scream? cackle? appear? disappear? produce? sky-write? deal with monkeys? etc., etc., etc.
Margaret Hamilton
282
Everything I’ve written is based on something that has happened to me or something that I know a great deal about.
283
I have a great deal of respect and admiration for people who put themselves on the line.
284
I’ve had a very full life, and I’ve enjoyed it very much. I’ve learned a great deal and feel indebted to all the people who have worked so hard.
285
In coming to the Congress as a new Member and becoming a fellow Blue Dog, we have had an opportunity to share and really spend a great deal of time in examining the challenges that our Nation finds itself in in getting its fiscal house in order.
286
As a child, I had a serious illness that lasted for two years or more. I have vague recollections of this illness and of my being carried about a great deal. I was known as the ‘sick one.’ Whether this illness gave me a twist away from ordinary paths, I don’t know; but it is possible.
Jacob Epstein
287
If I wasn’t an actor, I’d be a teacher, a history teacher. After all, teaching is very much like performing. A teacher is an actor, in a way. It takes a great deal to get, and hold, a class.
288
I don’t know a great deal about Alzheimer‘s – just what it does.
289
I don’t approach anything I do like an academic. I’m not trained, and I work with intuition a great deal.
290
When you are doing a show, it can get really dull. You are sitting so long while they set up the lights, then you say a couple of lines, then they tear down the lights again. At least stunts are something that uses your physical energy a great deal.
Yvonne Craig
291
I spend as much time as I possibly can doing things for other people, if I can. If I see a need and I feel that I can help, I do it. I work a great deal in terms of charities and things.
292
It takes a great deal of history to produce a little literature.
293
While we have to take personal responsibility for our actions, I have a great deal of empathy for people who are unconsciously racially biased, and indeed count myself among their number.
294
The Yas Marina circuit is really pretty impressive. The track itself has some quite slow corners and not a great deal of overtaking opportunities, but it seems to combine a road course with a circuit course.
Alexander Rossi
295
I steal props from ‘SNL‘ a great deal. Almost every sketch I’m in, I try to grab something from it, so I have a storage space full of props.
296
Slang has different functions: many of the words we use are playful and a lot are tribal – we speak the same way as the groups we are part of. A great deal are also euphemistic, so it’s no surprise that a third of us are perplexed by their meanings and origins.
297
There’s a great deal of suspicion and misunderstanding about IT among practicing doctors. One hears things like, ‘I don’t want to be turned into a data entry clerk, and I don’t want some machine between me and my patients.’
298
I believe my publisher has shown a great deal of faith in me over a lot of years but I’m not prepared to be so arrogant to say that the long-term literary value of my work would compensate them for a financial failure.
299
I think writers have to be proactive: they’ve got to use new technology and social media. Yes, it’s hard to get noticed by traditional publishers, but there’s a great deal of opportunity out there if you’ve got the right story.
300
One hundred percent of our earnings are reinvested in the company, and a great deal of that goes to research.
301
Perhaps, once I am gone, the one thing I might be remembered for is having sung a great deal of Mahler with a great many phenomenal conductors. It is wonderful music, very spiritual.
Maureen Forrester
302
I read a great deal as a child. A lot of children go through a phase of reading in a literally voracious way. It is their primary imaginative activity. Maybe that’s an experience which is not so common any more with the presence of television in every home.
303
Governments follow their people. A great deal has to do with the vision of the leadership of governments. They have a vision, and they translate that to their people and to their counterparts in other countries. You can fulfill and achieve a great deal if you get along well as individuals, as people, as persons.
304
I knew that there was a great deal of depth and life that was sitting just beyond my mother’s gaze.
305
Dad played with me a great deal, as dads should do, and our chief sport was baseball. He bought me a hardball when I was three years old, and he used to sit in a rocker on the front porch while I sat on the grass in the yard, and we’d play catch by the hour.
Mordecai Brown
306
I try to dress the bottom I have. The body I have and the bottom I have. I have the intention of looking fabulous every time, and I care about it a great deal. I’m very vain.
307
My drawings at first were made altogether in watercolors, but they wanted softness and a great deal of finish.
308
I really had a lot of dreams when I was a kid, and I think a great deal of that grew out of the fact that I had a chance to read a lot.
309
I did feel support right from the start from LeBron. He’s always shown me a great deal of respect dating back to our battles when I was in Indiana and competing with the Heat in the conference finals, and coaching him in the All-Star Game.
310
I think Madonna has a great deal of intelligence and capability. I have a lot of respect for her. She’s taken her career and maximized it with intelligence and creativity.
Carole King
311
I’ve spent a great deal of my life one way or another talking about food or eating food.
312
The VA MISSION Act signed into law by President Trump will do a great deal to improve access to health care for rural veterans but it will require vigilance to ensure we provide annual appropriations needed to implement it.
313
My mother started to suffer from multiple sclerosis, but nobody knew what MS was then. My father didn’t – and later he suffered a great deal of guilt over that. It was an awful business and very fraught.
314
That said, I should also add that I learned a great deal from being allowed in these privileged circles and am grateful for the opportunity to have worked closely with some of the most powerful and successful people in the business including Steven Spielberg and Ted Turner.
315
If you can make finance more functional, make it a tiny percent better, you create a great deal of resources, which you can use for other things like education and healthcare.
316
I spent a great deal of time with Che Guevara while I was in Havana. I believe he was far less a mercenary than he was a freedom fighter.
317
I don’t read a great deal of fiction, to my shame, other than the classics.
318
I remember, before the 2003 World Cup, I worked extremely hard on my fitness. A great deal of training and dietary discipline. I believe I lost 19 kg. And 19 is the number of runs I scored in the entire tournament.
319
I don’t watch a great deal of television because I don’t have a television, and I don’t have a huge catalog of films that I’ve watched, either.
Lucy Griffiths
320
Nostalgia has always been a key player in my songwriting cause within that space I find a great deal of inspiration.
321
It’s a huge privilege to be named England Twenty20 captain and form part of a leadership team that I’ve no doubt will work well together with a great deal of synergy.
322
Defendants are being evaluated based on numerical grid without any aggravating circumstances being considered. The effect has been to transfer the disparity from the judge to the prosecutor allowing for a great deal of leeway on indictments.
323
There are many members of parliament present here who know as well as I do that, if a man has not already been converted, it will require a great deal more than a letter of appeal to achieve conversion.
324
Anthropology never has had a distinct subject matter, and because it doesn’t have a real method, there’s a great deal of anxiety over what it is.
325
My dad was a trained carpenter and worked for Vauxhall Motors. We had money, though not a great deal.
326
We’re going to have to forgive a great deal of the Soviet era debt. There’s no question about that. Let’s face up to that. We’re going to have to put in money if Russia is really going to consolidate a democracy.
327
In the lonely hours, I have spent a great deal of time thinking about eternal things. I have contemplated the comforting doctrines of eternal life.
328
Through my work with PETA, I have learned a great deal about chimpanzee behavior and the plight of chimpanzees imprisoned in laboratories.
329
A face is a road map of someone’s life. Without any need to amplify that or draw attention to it, there’s a great deal that’s communicated about who this person is and what their life experiences have been.
330
I think every actor injects some of his own personality into his parts. There’s a great deal of myself in McCoy, a great deal of Bill in Kirk, and a great deal of Leonard in Spock!
DeForest Kelley
331
As far as being the guy and really the first guy with the reputation to sign on to be a part of ‘Lucha Underground,’ I take a great deal of pride in it.
332
People feel a great deal of their wealth or lack thereof in their home value. Despite the fact they’re living there and not going to sell it per se, it does have a big psychological effect.
333
There is a great deal of innovation occurring in Colorado, with some of the most brilliant minds and creative startup companies in the world formulating climate-change solutions right in our backyard.
334
There are many experiments and a great deal of research that can be performed on the station that make a difference in our lives and we are committed to supporting this important vocation.
Marc Garneau
335
Everyone has different issues, and I think for a great deal of women, those issues are self-esteem. And for me, I really wanted to understand it and get through it because I didn’t want to be an actress afraid of getting older. I refuse to live that way.
336
People’s genes can say a great deal about their health. There are genes that reveal an increased likelihood of getting cancer, heart disease or Alzheimer’s.
337
For those who support same-sex marriage – and I support it without reservation – the ideal of equality and the belief in the dignity of same-sex relationships necessarily makes the issue seem a great deal like the civil-rights struggles of the past.
338
Maybe I should say that memory interests me a great deal, because I think we all tell stories of our lives to ourselves as well as to other people. Well, women do, anyway. Women do this a lot. And I think when men get older, they do this too, but maybe in slightly different terms.
339
On a personal level, there are many people who have meant a great deal to me. My father and mother were certainly of vital importance, not only in themselves but because they created a world for me to revolt against.
340
I don’t know if the European Union contributes a great deal to espionage. At the union level, they talk about commerce and privacy. But to keep citizens safe, that remains a responsibility back in national capitals.
341
I think that a great deal of what made America special is lost beyond recall, and I don’t have any good policy ideas that I am at all confident will go very far in bringing that back.
342
I’ve been a very, very fortunate man. I’ve had a lot of highs – and a great deal of lows.
343
I talk a great deal to prior Secretaries of State about policy issues.
344
Writing an encyclopedia is hard. To do anywhere near a decent job, you have to know a great deal of information about an incredibly wide variety of subjects. Writing so much text is difficult, but doing all the background research seems impossible.
345
I have learned a great deal in my life, and DeMolay helped me to learn that character and integrity should be cornerstones in your life. As a Senior DeMolay, as a father, the best advice I could ever give would be to take the high road in life, and you will be able to build trusting relationships.
Larry Wilcox
346
The people who are writing online and the people in my genre of creative non-fiction exert a great deal more freedom that journalists are allowed to exert in their day-to-day work.
Lee Gutkind
347
A great deal of American T.V. viewed on Hulu, which is superb – ’30 Rock’, for instance, is on very good form.
Ben Schott
348
In 2018, my biggest worry is actually about North Korea. I worry a great deal that they may do a destructive attack, perhaps against our financial sector, in an attempt to deter a potential U.S. strike against either their nuclear facilities or even the regime itself.
349
Mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with.
350
I wrote a great deal of a novel, ‘Winter’s Tale,’ on the roof of a Brooklyn Heights tenement on Henry Street. I was a technical climber, and now and then I would put down my manuscript and get up to walk along parapets and climb walls and chimneys.
351
Sausage is a great deal like life. You get out of it about what you put into it.
Jimmy Dean
352
Juventus can afford to spend a great deal of money for new players. But Napoli can always respond by playing magnificently.
353
He who is taught to live upon little owes more to his father’s wisdom than he who has a great deal left him does to his father’s care.
354
I’ve found that good dialogue tells you not only what people are saying or how they’re communicating but it tells you a great deal – by dialect and tone, content and circumstance – about the quality of the character.
355
There is a gigantic difference between earning a great deal of money and being rich.
356
There is a great deal of sympathy amongst workers for the Occupy Wall Street movement. We understand their frustration.
357
The protection of biodiversity and, therefore, of endangered species is an issue to which I attach a great deal of importance.
358
I checked to see if there’d been a really good book published in the last few decades. Then I started with what Cleopatra would have read, asking myself, ‘What can we know about her education?’ It turns out to be a very great deal, and bizarrely, no one had written about that before.
359
When people meet me, they’re often surprised – I talk a great deal.
360
A great deal has been said about my commitment not to raise taxes. It’s a core value – it’s common sense – it’s important to keeping and growing jobs – and it’s mainstream!
361
I relax by looking at things and reading about things. Even the simplest thing can reveal a great deal about the world around us. It relaxes me greatly to sit back with my feet up and look around my study at the everyday things that surround me.
362
I feel lucky because I was a nerd, which I talk about in the book, but I had academic success, so through that, because that’s what my parents put a great deal of value on, I had a great childhood because I sort of fulfilled the expectations of being good at school.
363
I get afraid of the dark if I’m in a great deal of dark, and I have to move around inside of that fear… But there is a chance that something… will talk to me from the dark, so I have… to be prepared for that communication, which has happened.
Emil Ferris
364
I do think there is a great deal of caricature around the House of Commons. It is just that kind of place.
365
An independent Scotland could be far more internationalist and would benefit a great deal from links to both Scandinavia and states in other continents.
366
Yes, I was correctly quoted in saying I introduced sex into films in the 20’s, but it was sex in good taste and left a great deal to one’s imagination.
Pola Negri
367
In addition, there is one title I cherish a great deal more than Congressman and that is the title of… Dad.
368
Some people are born gardeners, some are politicians. I was an actor. It took a great deal of pain before I figured that out. I didn’t relate to most of it.
Kathleen Quinlan
369
I was fortunate to have my business partner of many years – Hemal Thakkar – who helped a great deal in production under our banner, Playtime Creation.
370
With a wedding gown, I have to make sure that people fall in love with it and that the details are very specific and special. There has to be a big story behind it and a great deal of integrity when it comes to the design.
371
I do feel like I’ve changed a great deal, but not anything outside of the norm of what most people experience as they grow and they take on the responsibilities of parenthood and being more engaged in their business and all that stuff. I think it’s a pretty natural evolution.
372
Iraq is a long way from the U.S., but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face.
373
I come from Chicago, and the landscape of the Midwest has always meant a great deal to me.
374
It’s hard for me not to have a great deal of compassion for the last Romanov family because, really, I don’t know if a politically savvy ruler would have been able to make the situation turn out much differently.
375
Congress suffers a great deal of criticism for its partisan acrimony. But while we may disagree politically, and air our opposition in this chamber, it is the conversation behind the scenes that cements and defines our relationships.
376
We know a great deal more about the causes of physical disease than we do about the causes of physical health.
377
Since joining the U.S. House of Representatives in November of 2006, I have strongly supported Speaker Nancy Pelosi. I have the utmost respect for her, and I believe the Democrats were able to accomplish a great deal under her leadership.
Albio Sires
378
Music means a great deal to me.
379
1988 I also received from the city of Vienna the cross of honour for art and science. These titles and the various honors mean a great deal to me, most of all for the reason that they would mean a great deal to my parents too.
Leon Askin
380
It takes a great deal of courage to love.
381
But when you get a bit older, and I hate to use the word, quite a bit more established, people take more notice and conducting becomes a great deal easier. You don’t have battles like you had before.
Peter Maxwell Davies
382
A great deal of unnecessarily bad golf is played in this world.
Harry Vardon
383
I went to art school, I think it helped me a great deal because it taught me who I am.
384
A great deal of the work I do involves the military.
385
I think success has no rules, but you can learn a great deal from failure.
Jean Kerr
386
As an artist, you reflect the world around you. To do that, you must dive in, take risks, fall on your face, win, and sometimes lose a great deal.
387
It varies from song to song, although Buck Owens and I recently collaborated on writing a duet together and am looking forward with a great deal of anticipation to recording that track for the new studio album.
388
Design is about point of view, and there should be some sort of woman or lifestyle or attitude in one’s head as a designer. So my being able to reach the masses was something that meant a great deal to me – especially for women who could never wear Vera Wang.
389
The difference between a bad artist and a good one is: the bad artist seems to copy a great deal; the good one really does.
390
Errors, to be dangerous, must have a great deal of truth mingled with them. It is only from this alliance that they can ever obtain an extensive circulation.
391
I have a great deal of respect for Wisconsin workers.
392
Fortune, which has a great deal of power in other matters but especially in war, can bring about great changes in a situation through very slight forces.
Julius Caesar
393
I have a great deal of empathy for anyone who’s having a hard time. I believe this ability to see another’s viewpoint has served me well as a writer.
Alex Flinn
394
I’ve had problems with my eyes, and my legs hurt if I walk a great deal. That’s due to very bad circulation. It’s called claudication, and it’s painful. So I have to stop if I’m walking, and pretending I’m looking in the window, so that I can rest them a little bit and then start off again.
395
I watch children a great deal; their idea is that rules are always negotiable, whereas you absolutely cannot joke at the airport about your toothpaste, and you cannot rollerblade in Grand Central Station. I keep running up against these things.
Natalie Jeremijenko
396
It has cost me a great deal to become myself. I don’t want to be another person.
Concha Buika
397
Whatever it is, music should sound spontaneous, I’ve derived a great deal of pleasure from playing jazz and having the knowledge of that spontaneity.
398
I know what she used to do sometimes. She kept her best cape she wore on the street in there, and she used occasionally to go up there to get it and to take it into her room. She kept a great deal in the guest room drawers.
Lizzie Andrew Borden
399
I have suffered a great deal from writers who have quoted this or that sentence of mine either out of its context or in juxtaposition to some incongruous matter which quite distorted my meaning, or destroyed it altogether.
400
I am not ridiculing verbal mechanisms, dreams, or repressions as origins of poetry; all three of them and more besides may have a great deal to do with it.
401
Tony Benn and I were very close, very close friends for 30, 40 years. We talked to each other a great deal, and we were great friends. And I was with him shortly before he died, talking about prospects of the world and prospects for peace. And I’m very sad that he’s gone.
402
I’s taken me a great deal to get here. I don’t plan on missing anything.
Bobby Bonilla
403
Michael is a funny character, for whom I have a great deal of affection. He sat across his desk and seemed to be a bit of a blunt fellow. We began talking about the characters and he opened up about his vision.
404
Many British people of different faiths follow religious codes and practices and benefit a great deal from the guidance they offer.
405
I listen to Bach a great deal. In general I like to listen to hymns and liturgical music.
406
Wanting a more positive environment isn’t enough. You need to do something, and it doesn’t require a great deal of effort or some huge change in the way you approach things at work.
407
The politician being interviewed clearly takes a great deal of trouble to imagine an ending to his sentence: and if he stopped short? His entire policy would be jeopardized!
Roland Barthes
408
I find everything in life a little bit sad, but I also find a great deal of hope everywhere I look.
409
I was brought up in the War. I was an adolescent in the Second World War. And I did witness in London a great deal of the Blitz.
410
I don’t pretend to understand the Universe – it’s a great deal bigger than I am.
411
I have a great deal of company in the house, especially in the morning when nobody calls.
412
There are many philanthropists who we admire and have learned a great deal from, including mentors like Bill and Melinda Gates and peers like Cari Tuna and Dustin Moskovitz.
413
Queen Victoria loved the French Riviera. She visited on nine occasions and did a great deal to give this area its chic international reputation.
414
Singing involves a great deal of psychology.
415
Playing for Barcelona‘s academy was a very important time for me and my career, as I learned a great deal here.
416
I’m able to bring a great deal of experience to a company that is looking to build young talent, which is vital to the future of professional wrestling.
417
I’ve been all over the world on my own because, as a scientist, you travel a great deal if your work is reasonably successful or published. I get invitations to go to all sorts of strange countries where I would mostly be by myself and just meet other people there, instead of having travelling companions.
418
I was taking my first uncertain steps towards writing for children when my own were young. Reading aloud to them taught me a great deal when I had a great deal to learn. It taught me elementary things about rhythm and pace, the necessary musicality of text.
419
I had made a great deal of money, and I was proud of it. I was a capitalist.
420
I care a great deal about LGBT U.S. servicemen and women being able to serve openly and honestly. Since early in my career, I’ve included realistic LGBT characters in my books. The idea that a gay Navy SEAL had to hide who he was in order to serve was a terrible one – and I made sure my readers knew that!
Suzanne Brockmann
421
At the start, you don’t earn a great deal, so you have to work other jobs if you want to play football. When I was at Doncaster, I couldn’t solely do football. I had to work; otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to live.
422
Wall climbing is an offshoot of the more traditional sport of mountain climbing. It is very difficult; one must combine a great deal of stamina with the ability of a world-class gymnast.
423
I’m not a big fan of revolutions. People nearly always call for them when a team that’s triumphed a great deal goes a year without winning anything. For me, however, the experience gained in previous victories is important.
Carles Puyol
424
We spend a great deal of time getting the fan to buy the ticket. Why shouldn’t it be: ‘Buy the concert ticket and bundle in the t-shirt, or join the fan club?’
425
The benefits and consequences of globalization have a great deal to do with whether we’re intelligent and thoughtful about how we approach globalization, or whether we’re blindly accepting… or blindly resistant.
426
I don’t know much about creative writing programs. But they’re not telling the truth if they don’t teach, one, that writing is hard work, and, two, that you have to give up a great deal of life, your personal life, to be a writer.
427
I love the Roth IRA. Tax-free income in retirement is a truly great deal.
428
I think maybe since there isn’t a great deal of access to the mainstream media and people don’t understand the language of mainstream media, if you put music out there with lyrics that are loosely political, people absorb some of it and spit it back out.
429
The tragedy is that political leaders failed so badly at delivering what Iraqis clearly wanted – and for that, a great deal of responsibility lies with Prime Minister Maliki.
430
I had a great deal of confidence when I graduated from Berkeley. I had almost none when I was at Princeton. After a while, when people tell you you can’t do something because you’re a woman, you begin to believe maybe they’re right.
Margaret Geller
431
As a species, we tend to live in environments where our own artifacts dominate. The way we shape our environment and are in turn shaped by it is a key theme in my fiction – indeed, it’s a key part of a great deal of science fiction.
432
I like the Baldwin boys a great deal. Alec is super-smart, super-articulate, almost too smart to be an actor.
Anthony LaPaglia
433
I make fun of Mensa. I don’t know a great deal about Mensa – that’s the high IQ group – but I say, ‘To get into Mensa, you have to have a high IQ, and once you get in, you spend your time congratulating people who are in Mensa with you.’ To me that’s a pretty stupid way to spend your life.
434
American women mean a great deal to me. They’re such lost souls, particularly the women of my generation. And women need so much help. They never have anyone to turn to. I help them understand how they can look better, how to do this, do that, get a job. And they’re very trusting. Like little lost kids.
435
It looks as if the NHS will gradually fade away, and we shall go back to a great deal of private medicine.
436
When one has a great deal to put into it a day has a hundred pockets.
437
A very great deal is written about the future of book publishing – much more than on its present or past – and the only takeaway from all these oracles seems to be that a great empire will be destroyed.
438
Because if you’re trying to write and you have unlimited time, you can procrastinate an unlimited account, but if you have limited time, you rush to the page trying to get something down in the little bit of fragment of time that you have, and you may write a great deal that way.
439
I wanted to reimagine the role, in a way that was respectful of its traditional responsibilities but made them part of a wider pattern of poetry about national incidents, events, preoccupations; and to spend a great deal of time going to schools trying to demystify poetry.
440
The salesman knows nothing of what he is selling save that he is charging a great deal too much for it.
441
The negative about acting is that you have to spend a great deal of time away from your friends and loved ones, but it’s not like working a 9-5 job and only having two or three weeks off a year. I may not have seen my girlfriend for two or three months, but then we can spend two or three months together solidly.
442
The party is a true art form in Sydney and people practise it a great deal. You can really get quite lost in it.
443
I have had a great deal of interaction with Koreans and feel a fairly strong bond with Korea.
444
We are under no delusions as to the innate goodness even of very small children. They are bad a great deal of the time, but before it has been knocked out of them, they see no limit to the potentialities of the human will. Theirs is the faith to move mountains, because they do not yet know the fearful heft of them.
445
Disability informs almost every part of my life. It’s as important, if not more so, than my gender and sexuality. It’s certainly a great deal more important to me than my religion or whether or not I caught a tram, ferry or bus to work.
446
I am a man who has made a great deal of money, and I haven’t got a great deal. This is because I give it no value, and a certain Christian precept is something to be lived by, and so forth.
Sidney Buchman
447
I lived through a golden period where society felt that it was good to help people who didn’t have a great deal of money fulfil their potential.
448
Ghost City’ began as a idea. I felt that I hadn’t read or heard a great deal about the sort of life that I thought I had, and I just thought that it would be interesting to sit down and see if I could put it down onto paper.
449
A little learning is not a dangerous thing to one who does not mistake it for a great deal.
William Allen White
450
Beauty is that quality which, next to money, is generally the most attractive to the worst kinds of men; and, therefore, it is likely to entail a great deal of trouble on the possessor.
Anne Bronte
451
‘Scorpion’ has so much humor and so much heart and a great deal of action.
452
The test audience holds a great deal of power in the process of filmmaking in the United States.
453
I spent the first 33 years of my life with secrets, and lots of them. I spent a great deal of energy worrying over what people thought and obscuring the things I was ashamed of… trying to appear what I thought was normal.
454
I’ve talked about sex a great deal in my music for a great while now. I feel very comfortable with it.
455
I was very lucky because hanging out at a golf course was much better than being on the streets. Golf taught me a great deal. I grew up surrounded by people who were professionalslawyers, doctors, engineers. Around them, I learned how to behave, speak, eat, dress. I had nothing at home. The club was my home.
Angel Cabrera
456
I think technical people now should learn literature, because literature teaches you a great deal about how – the depths and variety of human imagination.
457
I never considered I might make a career out of writing as I was going to school, so when I did turn my attentions that way, I was very ill prepared, having only what I read as a guide, and no formal training whatsoever. I credit that very ignorance with a great deal of my success.
Kim Harrison
458
In the spring of 1929, I returned to the United States. I was homesick for this country. I had learned in my student days a great deal about the new physics. I wanted to pursue this myself, to explain it, and to foster its cultivation.
459
You could say that any book that takes a position is not fair, unless you keep saying, ‘On the one hand, on the other…’ and take a great deal of trouble to present both sides. That kind of journalism tends not to be very interesting.
460
There are many actors who have inspired me: Spencer Tracy for his incredible elegance and, of course, Cary Grant. But, there’s also an Italian actor I admire a great deal: Alberto Sordi.
461
We used to think that if we knew one, we knew two, because one and one are two. We are finding that we must learn a great deal more about ‘and’.
Arthur Eddington
462
I know I’ve accomplished a great deal for a man of my height. It’s been a blessing, and I thank God for the talent. I’ve always given 110%.
463
As a reporter, I spent a great deal of time in court. During brief breaks in testimony, I would often look at the spouse, usually the wife, of the accused. I began to wonder how listening to the details of a crime purportedly committed by your spouse would affect that person’s view of her husband.
464
The game of golf would lose a great deal if croquet mallets and billiard cues were allowed on the putting green.
465
A lot of Christian extremism has done a great deal to discredit religion; the main religious traditions have abandoned their own intellectual cultures so drastically that no one has any sense of it other than the fringe.
